Snoop Dogg AKA Snoop Lion, has announced that he is changing his name again…to Snoopzilla!
The name-change is for his new funk persona, as part of a collaboration with Dam Funk, called 7 Days of Funk. The new name reportedly pays tribute to legendary funk bassist Bootsy Collins, who referred to himself as Bootzilla.
“We’re the babies of the Mothership,” Snoop said in a statement. “I’ve had funk influences in my music my whole career. Dam-Funk is cold. He’s keeping the funk alive and I knew I had to get down with him.”
The first 7 Days of Funk single is called Faden Away and the debut album is due out on December 10
